I know that we should all be able to function quite easily without internet. . .but I just can’t. My business, although is stationery and gifts that are like the opposite of technology, ironically I need technology and the internet to make the magic happen. One example is Pinterest. It not only inspires many projects and keeps the creativity flowing, it also drives traffic to my website. My website has things for sale. The things that are for sale are bought by humans and they in exchange for goods give me money via paypal and then I use paypal to transfer money to my account and walk into the grocery store and use my card to buy food for my family to eat so that they don’t die.

I am surrounded by talent. I really really am. Whether its amazing designers who create stunning products that I am privileged to sell in my shop, or on social media. And Because of my job, being quite the creative outlet, I am constantly introduced to awesome products. I am also very lucky to be gifted many amazing little things and I am always so overwhelmed with how generous people are to me and my family. I am so grateful. And excited that I get to offer my peeps a little treat. (more…)
I’ve been thinking lately about things I ‘want’. Not in a selfish spoilt brat kind of new clothes and shoes ‘want’ but things in life ‘professionally speaking’ but a messy pink hair type professional. I don’t do suits. And I figure if I write it down and tell people what it is that I want to achieve, then the universe will officially know and shit can start to happen?! I’m in a sort of jittery mood lately because Christmas in the shop is coming up and for some reason its worrying me, and our internet is all fucked up and I am tethering from my phone and my data is waaaaay over(this is why I havent blogged sorry. . .Its OPTUS’s fault) SO I thought I would put some positive happy dreams out to the world.
Thank you Oprah you are right. (more…)
Today the mercury is rising and we are LOVING it in our house. Living by the beach, and finally having pool means that most of summer is spent outside.

I shared a post on Monday night on my Instagram and everyone could relate and had a little chuckle. It was all in good fun. Its hard being a parent and I love when other mums share funny things that happen throughout the day. I love to share. I love that we have a small little community of followers who support me and my family and our little business. Its such a nice place Instagram for us.

All weekend I have been doing talks about where I get the inspiration from, for my window displays. Usually the first stop is pinterest. I.AM.VERY.SLOW. On this new window display. WAY too many things going on and being a little bit over ambitious with creating things. These are a few images that are inspiring me with this next window. Should be installed this week. Wish me luck

So I’m doing a little course on blogging called Clever Cookie-School of Blog created and run by Fat Mum Slim and Rowe Timson and its really rad and super fun, even though I am a few days behind, because, well, life!!! But one of the lessons was a fact sheet on 100 different ideas to blog about. And holy crap did my brain explode with idea’s. SUCH a good course. If they do more courses in the future you need to totes do it. Its been like a week and a half and every single day there has been a different lesson or advice or info. SO good. (more…)
I love random awesomeness. All things that are a bit quirky. Last week I wrote about how I was not ok. It was for R U OK day. It wiped me out. Sometimes sharing about our struggles and the shitty parts of life means reflecting and remembering. And that can be exhausting mentally. (more…)
